Engine Stalls

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Peter Duivelaar, Feb 14, 2010.

  1. I have a really strange problem and that is that after about 1 lap the engine stalls and I can't restart it.
    The engine just suddenly stops.
    I have the feeling it is something in the settings, but I don't know what.

    Fuel? engine overheating and exploding? :-P
  3. No, engine temperatures are low and 10 liters of fuel left.
    And it didn't happen once, it happens every time I leave the pits, and then after about 1 lap the engine just stalls.
  4. could it be down to your ignition and starter button?
  5. Very strange indeed - can't think of any in game settings that could cause this. Are all other controls still working? When you press brakes do the brake lights come on, can you flash your lights, change gear etc etc? The only time I have seen something similar to this are
    1. When the lead connecting the pedals to the wheel has been pulled out or damaged, this causes all other controls to still function (except pedals) and the car will coast to a standstill and may appear to have stalled.
    2. When the deadzone on the brake pedal needs to be increased because the brake pedal is regitering a constant press - although this fault would not occour after 1 lap like yours.
    3. When another piece of hardware, or the software running it, have interfered with the working of the wheel or pedal set, again unlikely because of the 1 lap delay before it happens, its usually there when you get in game and, for me was the result of too many similar input devices on a USB hub.

    Hope some of this helps and it would be interesting if you posted to say what it was, if you find out.
  6. Another possible - I don't know so may be well wrong here - could it be you have accidentally mapped a button to cut engine (if such a control exists) - maybe your catching this button by acciddent after about one lap??

    That alarm system I installed works.
  8. I think it might, but how does it influence this problem?

    @Dave, I don't think any of the things you mentioned is the problem.
    It happens constantly after about 1 lap, when I go back to garage and go out again, then again after about 1 lap the engine just stalls.
    All other controls are working.
  9. Well if your racing and you press the ignition button it turns the engine off.
    Try un assigning the Ignition and starter button
  10. Is it one particular car Peter or all of them?

    Is it on one particular track or again, all of them?
  11. if understand i right its on all cars (including mod cars) and all tracks (including mod tracks)
    cant guess about whats wrong must did you tryed to reinstall the base game ??
    save your mods, tracks, skins and userfiles befor if the problem still exist add mod by mod
    maybe one of the mods couse this issue if that fails too RMA the wheel
  12. It is on all the cars and tracks, but I know for sure that the problem lies somewhere in the settings I changed.
    When I first used the wheel with default settings I did not have this problem, only after I assigned the buttons the problem started.

    What do you have your starter and ignition settings assigned to?
  14. Try removing Your Ignition and Starter Buttons
  15. Thanks Ben! That solved the problem.
    But do I not need them to start the engine after a pitstop?
  16. I only use ignition. :)
  17. You do if you spin the car and have Auto CLutch off.

    But with pitstops you don't need them assigned, but your pitstop will be quicker if they are assigned
    Just try assigning the keys (Ignition and starter) to something else.

    What did you have it on B4?

    Looks like SimRaceway gave you a dodgy G27 :p
  18. to make it faster you will need the ingition one or you will wast 1-2 second while wating for the engien start fter teh repairs are done
    with the ignition mapped you can start already after the fuel is in
  19. I had it on B8 and B21. (The 2 top buttons on the left side of the G27 wheel)

    I have My Igntion and Starter button as the Red Buttons (Furthest right is Starter and the button next to it is the Ignition)
